the was that went

why always the dead –
the kings that walk the walls
and the Marley’s in chains
to come with warnings
from a weathered life

what meaning are words
from the come and gone
to ones who are crisp
against the breathless 
better to hear from the was
from the was that went
went and came again
bold words are to be consumed
and to be drunk upon
